We have previously characterized stromal progenitor cells contained in fetal bone marrow by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) using the differential expression of CD34, CD38, and HLA-DR, and found that a small number were contained within the CD34(+) cell fraction. In the present study, the frequency of stromal progenitors in both the CD34+ and(More)
T-cell and B-cell reconstitution was studied in nine patients who received fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS)-sorted autologous CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC). The mean numbers of T cells (CD3+), B cells (CD19+) and CD34+ HPC administered to each patient were .004, .002, and 1.8 x 10(6) cells/kg, respectively. After high-dose(More)
Despite the importance of immunological aspects in pregnancy, until now few studies have been reported on the cellular immune modifications of diabetic pregnancy and on the newborn of diabetic mothers. Therefore, we thought it of interest to evaluate cell immunity in diabetic pregnant women and in their newborn children. Fourteen pregnant women with Type 1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of a dermal biopsy punch for accurate and quick removal of ectopic cilia in dogs. ANIMALS STUDIED This study reports the treatment of ectopic cilia detected in 12 dogs during the period from June 2002 to December 2004. Five cases were affected with ectopic cilia in the right eye, and five in the left eye, with two cases(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to compare plasma concentrations of circulating intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (cICAM-1), a marker of endothelial dysfunction, in nondiabetic subjects and type 1 diabetic patients and to evaluate whether chronic cigarette smoking had a deleterious effect on plasma cICAM-1 levels in type 1 diabetic patients.
